Lebanon's uprising has acted as a cauldron for artistic production, inspiring artists to contribute across a range of media, from murals to photos and, more recently, screen-printing.Farah Fayyad, an independent graphic designer and screen-printer who runs Nice Nice Prints, and several others were hard at work -- taking names; printing T-shirts; trying to keep the crowd away from the rotation range of the four-panel screen-printer; hanging newly printed shirts on the grille of the shop behind them that had earlier finished putting up metal barriers to protect its glass front.The team was screen-printing designs onto whatever people brought them -- or for those unprepared, on white T-shirts they'd brought along. Fayyad said she and graphic designer and illustrator Siwar Kraytem of Studio Safar had come up with the idea.Fayyad said people's reactions had been very positive.
